The Fifth International Meeting on Internet & Audiology will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to share current knowledge and facilitate the development and implementation of evidence-based methods to deliver high quality care and support to persons with hearing problems over the Internet. Particular attention will be paid to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has fundamentally disrupted the delivery of audiology services around the world. The pandemic has also brought telemedicine to the forefront of clinical practice and highlighted an urgent need to establish valid and effective ways to deliver audiology services remotely. The 2021 Meeting on Internet & Audiology will enable participants to consider lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic for Internet & Audiology, and emphasize the formidable challenges and unique opportunities that have arisen as the result of the pandemic.
The meeting is being planned so that presenters and attendees can participate completely online. The Fifth International Meeting on Internet and Audiology will be held online on May 3 – 6, 2021. On each of the four meeting dates there will be a 2.5-3 hour session organized around four themes of specific relevance to Internet and Audiology:
(1) Patient-centered care and e-Health,
(2) Social media and hearing care,
(3) Online audiologic rehabilitation,
(4) Implementation science.
We expect to preload contributions for asynchronous viewing prior to the scheduled meeting times which will allow for synchronous discussion. Synchronous session times will be selected to best accommodate participants from around the world. We aim to promote participant interaction in order to replicate the intimate atmosphere that we have achieved in previous meetings. Depending on travel and meeting restrictions, the meeting may also include local satellite hubs in several countries for in-person participation.
